Sir Paul McCartney will be performing at Co-op Live later this year as part of his first UK shows since headlining Glastonbury in 2022.

The Beatles star, aged 81, will bring his Got Back tour to London and Manchester in December.

The tour dates mark his first live shows in the UK since his headlining set at Glastonbury in June 2022, where he became the festival’s oldest solo headliner.

The set featured surprise appearances from Bruce Springsteen and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.

Sir Paul performed Beatles and Wings songs in a set lasting more than two hours, and was joined on stage by Springsteen for Glory Days and I Wanna Be Your Man.
